Preliminary results for RR Lyrae stars and Classical Cepheids from the Vista Magellanic Cloud (VMC) survey
The Vista Magellanic Cloud (VMC, PI M. R. Cioni) survey is collecting KS-band time series photometry of the system formed by the two Magellanic Clouds (MC) and the "bridge" that connects them. These data are used to build KS-band light curves of the MC RR Lyrae stars and Classical Cepheids and determine absolute distances and the 3D geometry of the whole system using the K-band period luminosity (PLKS), the period-luminosity-color (PLC) and the Wesenhiet relations applicable to these types of...[Show more]
